Shotgun shells hurtle through the air in slow-motion. Blood spurts from multiple bullet wounds. Gun, sword, and bare knuckle fights aplenty. Yes, "Buffalo Boys" appears to have all the trappings of an exciting Spaghetti Western-inspired action film, but with an Indonesian twist.

Set in the 19th century in the Java region of Indonesia, Dutch colonizers have brutally taken over control of a local village. After having fled to the American Old West decades prior, two gun-slinging Indonesian brothers (played by Ario Bayu and Yoshi Sudarso) have returned home to exact revenge on their father's killer, a ruthless Dutch Captain (played by Dutch TV actor Reinout Bussemaker). What comes next is a smorgasbord of blood, bullets, and mayhem.

Directed and co-written by Singaporean film producer Mike Wiluan, who was one of the producers on "Crazy Rich Asians," "Hitman: Agent 47," and "The Night Comes for Us."

"Buffalo Boys" is out now, playing in theaters and on VOD as of today, January 11th. Watch the trailer, above.

In 19th Century Java, a brutal massacre and the murder of Sultan Hamza by Captain Van Trach and his Dutch soldiers force Arana, Jamar and Suwo -- the sultan's brother and infant sons -- to flee the country, bringing them halfway around the world to the American Wild West. After working the railroads and learning the cowboy way of life, Arana tells the boys it's time to return to their homeland and avenge their father's death. Back on Indonesian soil, the hunt for their father's killer begins. Along the way, they meet some villagers including Kiona, the rebellious and beautiful headman's daughter who Suwo falls for, and soon find out that the treacherous Van Trach still rules the area. Their presence puts the village in danger, quickly turning their quest for revenge into a fight for freedom. With the odds stacked against them, Arana, Jamar and Suwo use the skills they learned from the wilds of America to face Van Trach and his army in a showdown for justice.
